Let’s SAVE our bees!
Honey Bees are an endangered species.
- Some 250,000 species of flowering plants depend on bees for pollination.
- Bees increase the yields of around 90 crops, such as apples, blueberries and cucumbers by up to 30%, so many fruits and vegetables would become scarce and prohibitively expensive.
- In addition, many of our medicines, both conventional and alternative remedies, come from flowering plants. And cotton is another essential product pollinated by the bee, so we could say goodbye to cheap T-shirts and jeans.
- But it’s not just the human race that would suffer. Spare a thought for the poor birds and small mammals that feed off the berries and seeds that rely on bee pollination. They would die of hunger and in turn their predators – the omnivores or carnivores that continue the food chain would also starve. We could survive on wind-pollinated grains and fish, but there would be wars for control of dwindling food supplies.
- One single bee colony can pollinate 300 million flowers each day.
- Bees pollinate 70 of the top 100 human food crops.
- One of the biggest reasons to care about saving the bees? HONEY! No honey bees, no honey!
For these reasons PEST CONTROL EXPERTS do not fumigate honey bees. You should contact your local bee keeper to remove the hive. It is the RIGHT THING TO DO!
